Platform Panel on Equality ATLANTIC CITY NJ (AP) Segregationist Gov George C Wallace of Alabama demanded of Democratic platform writers Friday a plank calling for outright repeal of the Civil Rights act and hinted at a posri-ble new third party movement In sharp language Wallace warned of an uprising against the party's prevailing leadership unless it reverses- an alien philosophy of government w'hich the American people can-no! long embrace an unsound and dangerous philosophy He implied he will take leadership in a third-party movement immediately after the presidential election if as he put it the Democratic and Republican parties me-too each other through the presidential campaign of this year In such an event the Alabama governors statement said: We will begin immediately after Nov 3 to start a movement to bring about representative government We will use public opinion and we will use the ballot box We are going to remove some people from office and we are going to represent people who want to save this country Wallace who entered presidential primaries in Wisconsin Indiana and Maryland and showed surprising strength released his own delegates after the Republican party had nominated Arizona Sgif Barry Gold-water He recalled Reconstruction days in his appearance at the final session of the P 1 a t-form Committee preceding next weeks Democratic National Convention He

Committee Party leaders are hunting for a way to keep it from boiling over onto the convention floor and winding up with a bolt by Southerners such as they staged 16 years ago in Philadelphia Both Alabama and Mississippi are involved now as they were then The main menace to Democratic harmony centers in the determination of delegates of the Democratic Freedom party of Mississippi to keep the regular Mississippi delegation from being seated at the cpnvention The Freedom Democrats are largely Negro the regulars are all white It was the former who came m by bus Friday prepared to take the battle to the convention floor But the first significant rounds will be fought in the Credentials Committee at its first meeting Saturday The Freedom Democrats contend they were barred methodically
